Wahab Saheed Exhibition

Nanzuka Underground

poster for Wahab Saheed Exhibition

Ends in 13 days
Closed Today (Monday)

Nanzuka is pleased to present the world’s first-ever solo exhibition of up-and-coming Nigerian artist Wahab Saheed. Saheed was born in 1998 in Lagos, Nigeria. He graduated from the prestigious Yaba College of Technology with a Higher Diploma in Painting in 2019, and currently continues to work as a painter in his studio in Lagos.

Saheed paints portraits of black identities. His portraits of black figures depicted through sharp and speedy gestural mark making in contrast to the planar and almost graphically posteresque composition of the spaces that they inhabit, succeed in strongly emphasizing the physicality and the spirituality that these subjects carry.

In this exhibition, a selection of around ten new paintings on canvas will be presented in the first floor space of Nanzuka Underground. These works depict the artist’s friends, acquaintances, and family who live remarkably and with much strength in the midst of these unprecedented times brought on by the pandemic.
